Some of my flight sims aren't supported. I can fly just fine without the seat. But it is kind of like trying to fly without TrackIR. It can be done, but why would you if you have it available? If I start a flight in DCS World, Prepar3d, or Aerofly FS 2 and don't immediately feel the seat, I will exit the game and get it working. I don't run the simshaker software at PC startup, so sometimes I forget to start it before starting the game. Sometimes the power cord with its US plug adapter has worked its way loose enough to not have power. Sometimes I have to cycle the power switch to reset the USB interface. It only takes a few seconds to fix whatever is wrong. I don't fly without it in any sim that supports it.

Your individual comfort depends on quite a few things, like size and form of your seat and seat rests or the softness of the seating. The softer it is, the more your body weight pushes the motors into it (instead of into your body). So you may even experiment with putting a rubber mate UNDER the JetSeat. Your body-fat-index is another important factor. Don't listen to your doctor: if you eat as much pizza as I do you're definitely on the comfortable side ─ for hours of flying nonstop...

+1
From my experience some soft layer UNDER the JetSeat provides the vibration nodes with some more space which let them to vibrate more intensively, to a certain limit.

Sorry to ask something what was for sure already asked (but nearly 250 pages are just too much):

1. What is the support of Il-2: BoX? As it is described as "beta".
2. Rise of Flight - supported or not?
As with DCS these are my 3 sims that I am interested in and as BoX is most likely to be my No.1 this is quite interesting for me.
3. Do you use some local parts (especially vibration motors) or are they eventually possible to buy elsewhere (European Union) - just in case of the repair?
4. KW-90x vs. JetSeat FSE - any difference other than outside packing? I am not simpit builder but I found fabric to be more comfortable than rubber/leather and its substitutes



Honestly, I am not just now in a mood of immediate buying and I have just found your product, but for now it is in my list of future acquisitions (at the moment it is 2nd behind good joystick).

1. Supported in SimShaker - Wings beta version. Due to modest telemetry output from the game only 2 effects "a la motion platform" currently implemented.
2.Supported in Sound Intercept mode, more details you can find here https://dreamsimteam.blogspot.com/p/jetseat-ug.html
3. Yes, I use local parts.
4. Please read my explanation on this page https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...34704&page=174

Please can somebody help?

I have one of the motors of my jetseat that doesn't work properly.
I inspected it and initially it was not turning at all, then I tried to spin it with my hands and it started spinning but at a lower rate compared to the others.
All the cables are intact so I think it's a lubrication problem.

Could I use the WD40?
Also I can't really figure where to lubricate

I would recommend to use a silicon spray.
There are 2 holes in the front part of the motor. Make a few puffs over there.

WD40 has nothing to do with silicone. It´s more a cleaner than a lubricant!
WD stands for Water Displacement
and consists mainly of hydrocarbons (petroleum ether) which evaporates quickly.
I can´t recommend it and would only use for cleaning tasks, not lubricating anything.

EDIT: I just discovered that WD40 has recently a silicone spray in the offer. So maybe you have this product.
